Why FSU Basketball deserves top three seed in NCAA Tournament

Why FSU Basketball deserves top three seed in NCAA Tournament

All too often, we overlook stunning games in the regional tournaments, like the insane end to No. 8 seeded Florida's stunning victory against No. 1 seeded LSU in the SEC Tournament to take Florida off the bubble. The school said he was reinstated after cooperating with a "joint inquiry" with the school and the NCAA.

LSU basketball coach Will Wade, suspended indefinitely by the school last week, wants to return to the sideline.

"Unfortunately, I probably shouldn't have gotten the T, looking back on it", Benford said.

"Whether they fouled me or not, it doesn't really matter at this point", Nembhard said.

Reid hit two 3-pointers in the final minute to tie it at 70 and again at 73 with 13.2 seconds left.

Wade sent out a statement today saying as much, and also conveniently failed to address whether or not he was guilty of committing blatant NCAA violations caught on tape by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Johnson finished with 16, Hudson had 13, Allen scored 12 and Hayes had 11.

United had won all nine of their away matches under Solskjaer until their trip to Emirates Stadium, where ... from Xhaka Pierre-Emerick struck blow the top-four battle. "There's many and games be by margins". "The in players, it's high". "That the performance I here". "Don't about players' because we back we give a go".


In 27 previous SEC Tournaments, Arkansas is 26-26, won the 2000 championship, has reached seven finals and 14 semifinals.

Benford also said, "We're not going to get any calls". Smart was held out of the Tigers' win over Vanderbilt to end the regular season. LSU extended its first-half advantage to double figures, 22-9, on a long three-pointer from the top of the key and Smart's short jumper with 9:50 remaining in the half.

LSU suspended Wade indefinitely last week in the wake of reports that Federal Bureau of Investigation wire-tap captured his telephone conversations with a person convicted past year of funneling money to the families of basketball recruits. "I say yes", SC coach Frank Martin said. With just a second left on the clock, Andrew Nembhard drilled a triple of his own to give the Gators the win. The last time the Tigers took a series against Florida from home was back in 2007, sweeping the Gators in a three-game series.

LSU shot 47.6 percent (30 of 63), while Florida made almost 60 percent of its second-half shots and finished at 46.4 percent (26 of 56). LSU was whistled for 24 fouls, Florida 10. The Tigers didn't even go to the free throw line in the first half despite having a 26-10 scoring edge in the paint. On the next possession, Keyontae Johnson nailed a three and a foul was called on LSU as the shot went up. "I heard guys (say) when there's an interim coach, you're not getting any calls".

At halftime, the SEC honored the late LSU forward Wayde Sims, who was shot to death last September.

Wade told Sports Illustrated on Thursday that he was put on leave because he didn't submit to an interview with LSU and NCAA officials.
